Purpose, taking control and the future’s bright!


If you listened to last week’s episode, you’ll know that I shared some of the lessons I’ve learnt from interviewing interesting guests over the past 12 months since the podcast was launched.

This week I plan to share a further 4 lessons, in celebration of the first anniversary of The Retirement Café Podcast. Last week’s lessons included:

  1. Everyone has a story
  2. Retirement as we know it is dead
  3. It’s never too late to do something important to you

This week I cover:

  1. the importance of having a purpose
  2. We have more control over ageing and our health than we may think
  3. Pensions really are interesting
  4. The future’s bright
